. so what obama is hoping is that i'm going to put out there now. because a year from now, people aren't going to remember the roll-out stuff. it's going to be like thank god i went to the doctor and it wasn't the emergency ward and guess what? now i've got my diabetes under control, my chemotherapy here, my viagra. there will be millions of men who will rise to the occasion and say we are grateful for what he has done. >> i just caught that. the thing is, zerlina, i think it's actually true, as funny as that was -- and i'm glad you made that appointment, the website is such a fixation, particularly in terms of media could haverag coverage, because something a reporter can log on to and demonstrate for themselves. it's as if they're acting the website literally can last for another year. because there is not an election for another year. how is that possible, they think that can keep going? >> i don't know. i mean, the problem for them is that obama care is their plan. and that's why they don't have anything to say. and they had to focus on the website. so i think the media and republi
of the presidency. so, you know, sort of give us perspective. put the obama administration in perspective one year into his first term. how -- just how bad or how well -- how is he doing? >> he had a bad 2013, even if things recover in december. but as you said, the story of presidencies is a cycle of, you know, political fortunes. >> boom and bust. >> you're down, then you're up. you're down and then you're up. and the only thing that really matters is if you're in a down part of the cycle right before an election. so barack obama doesn't have to face the voters anymore. so a lot of this talk about where he stands in the polls is only relevant if it actually leads to defections among democrats. the republicans already oppose him. if his low poll numbers cause democrats to head for the hills, that's when we should start saying it's really significant. so far, that hasn't happened. so the consequences of his low poll numbers are not yet serious. that doesn't mean they might not get serious in the new year if they can't get their act together on the website. if they do get their act together and the
this because by november of next year, you are going to be running for with obama care and people will have discovered. he cautioned patience. he said everybody needs to take a deep breath and everybody needs to go to the website and explore their options and then sign up. they have not had a problem getting people to sign up. the polling said that young people don't have health care for the same reason that everyone doesn't. too much money. yet if they go to the website, they are likely to find a plan to afford health care because they get a subsidy. >> that is a fascinating statistic. 40% of those signing up being under age 35. >> i am not sure they have done special outreach. the fact is when it's available and easily accessible from your home and on your computer, the people in general do understand that a bicycle accident, playing touch football, you can get a broken ankle and end up going to the emergency room and suddenly you are thousands of dollars in debt. if you can go to the website and sign up for a plan that is between 50 and $100 a month, it would be very, very well worth it.
obama with an american mother and a kenyan father, a graduate of the harvard law school, the president of the harvard law review, a senator in just his second year of office runs for president of the united states and is already the number two candidate. >> we're back at the "hardball" college tour at american university. your remarks the other day was so resonant on what the holy father pope francis has been saying. the belief we have a social responsibility, a moral responsibility to look out for people who haven't made it in this country. >> yeah. there's no great religion that doesn't speak to this. at root, every great religion has some equivalent of the golden rule, some equivalent of the idea that i am my brother's keeper and my sister's keeper. some notion that even as we each take individual responsibility for acting in a responsible and righteous way, part of our obligation is to the larger world. and to future generations. you know, i think pope francis is showing himself to be just an extraordinarily thoughtful and soulful messenger of peace and justice. i haven't had a cha
. >> president obama wanted income redistribution along with health care access. and the only way to do that, to make money from the haves and give it to the have nots. >> at this festive season of the year, mr. scrooge, it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the poor and destitute. >> the idea that a child may never be able to escape that poverty because she lacks a decent education or health care or a community that viewser
